  1. Intel RST driver concern


    An Intel RST driver already downloaded through WU on my desktop with a Z370 chipset. Device Manager nags with a pop up message that Intel 300 Series Chipset SATA AHCI Controller is ready to install the driver A probable cause for raised concern was found on Win-Raid : this page was where the screenshot was taken on Win-Raid - Section I, download links from the v17 platform I'm certain the driver will install in AHCI mode without issues Intel RST vs Windows AHCI drivers. (post #5) But its the reports of the drivers overtaking the management of the M.2 PCLe NVMe on the only system drive available that raises concern. I don't even know for sure what "completely overtaking" means. How great of a concern is that? . . . aside from creating a system restore point, anyone have any suggestions? - - - Updated - - - Ok. So within about maybe an hour and a half, the warning was taken down which I captured in a screen shot. The link I posted to Win-Raid will take you to the page. I know it was the same page because I had it bookmarked before I saved a screen shot. I'm still searching through the Win-Raid forum for posts #2200 up by 100PIER and Frame for an explanation. Odd... now I'm curious why the warning was posted in the first place

    :)

    Intel RST service is not running

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The Intel RST service is for the Intel Rapid Storage Driver. The Intel Rapid Storage Driver provides speed for data transfer and improves the performance for SATA drives or PCIe drives.

    • What is the make and model of the computer and motherboard?

    You can follow the methods mentioned below and check if that helps:

    Method 1: Changing the startup type for Service

    You can try changing the startup type for the Intel RST service and check if that makes a difference. Please refer the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press and hold Windows key + R, to open
      Run dialog box.
    2. Type serivces.msc and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Now, scroll down, look for Intel RST service, right click on it and click on
      Properties.
    4. Now, under startup type select Automatic from the drop down menu.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.

    Method 2: Updating the drivers manually

    You can try downloading the latest version of Intel Rapid Storage Driver from the

    Intel Website
    and check if that helps. However, I would suggest checking with the motherboard manufacturer website as well.

    If you are using RAID configuration, I suggest you to post your query in

    TechNet forums
    , where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on RAID configuration.

    intel rst driver

    i dont have win 10 installed so cannot try... does intel rst works? i have found that it is much faster then MS default drivers with 97 boards with win 8.1. Not so much in benchmarks, but in practice win 8.1 boots much faster with iastora.sys then benchmarks
    difference suggests.

    Intel RST driver concern

    Intel RST Driver

    Okay, and it says that the best driver for MY chipset is 15.5.0.1051 which is listed on that site... and besides, I only use the driver itself, not the full RST software.
